Crystals are used in spells on account of its immense power to conduct magical energy. Through the employment of crystals the energy gets focused to a point providing greater power to the spells cast. The magical practitioners believe that the spells cast using the crystals will be more powerful than those rituals that do not enjoy its graceful presence.
Practitioners think that the crystals have to be cleansed and ‘programmed’ to make it charged with the energy suitable for the spell-work. The process of cleansing the crystals differs with the magical religion of the spell caster. Some place the crystal under the flowing water for a few minutes or days depending on their belief to rinse it off the impurities. Others may sponge down the impurities by subjecting it to the four elements, namely, air, fire, water and earth. Typically, these crystals are not put under the fire for longer periods to reduce damage to it. Others may follow the process of placing it under the sunlight, whereas many cults believe in the strength exuded by the Moon in gaining the energy.
